“Terrific hosts in Lyme Regis”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

Gail and Lindsay welcomed us with tea and biscuits and were a font of information and help during our two days in Lyme Regis. Breakfasts were truly outstanding - Lindsay grilled fresh mackerel for us on our second day. Our room was on the top floor and like the rest we stayed in on this trip, cozy.

We stayed in room 4 which is at the back of the house; it was a lovely bright, clean and spacious room.
The facilities at the Devonia are great, We really enjoyed our stay. Gail and Lindsay's enthusiasm for their business and Lyme make this a great place for a night or longer.
We will return later this year.

It was a nice place but felt I should have known up front that there was wi fi only in the downstairs lounge. I was on the top floor and was looking forward to catching up on email. I did not want to go all the way down to the lounge in my pj's to work.

Also at 10 pm when we went to take showers, there was no hot water. As we had been hiking all day, we really needed a shower. The owner said we should have contacted him but @ 10PM???

I also think it was a little overpriced. I did like that they had a small ice box where guests could keep things cold.

Dear Midge
We are sorry that you had reason to be disappointed during your one night stay in June. As we said to you, we really do wish you had made us aware of these 2 problems at the time, rather than when you were leaving. Both could have been resolved quickly, and as it says in all the guest rooms, we are on hand for our guests 24/7.
We try really hard to make sure all of our guests have a wonderful stay, so are sorry not to have been successful on this occasion.
Best wishes
Lindsey & Gail

We stayed here for 2 nights and just loved it! It is ideally situated and we had the large double room at the top of the house, with views over Lyme Bay ( and with a sofa and coffee table place in front of the large window, could make the best of it as well)

Gail and Lindsay are very welcoming hosts, the place is spotless and beautifully decorated, with great breakfasts ( I had salmon and scrambled eggs and my partner had kippers), there is off street parking and even a small garden in the front with a bench to sit and take in the sun, lovely.

I think it was the little touches though that really made it, like bottled water in the room, wine glasses and corkscrew provided and use of a fridge to keep your drinks cold, books to read and a large new flat screen tv.

What else can I say, next time we are in Lyme Regis, this will be our first choice and have already recommended it to friends.

thanks you

I don't know how many times I've stayed at Devonia - I've lost count. What a great B&B, so clean, great ensuite bathroom and the most friendly hosts who really do make the stay such fun!!
Smoked salmon and scrambled eggs breakfast special and truly superb fresh coffee. There's nowhere else like it in Lyme Regis.

Room Tip: I've stayed in nearly all the rooms and they're all perfect, the top room has a great sea vi...

Gail and Lyndsey were very welcoming to me and my daughters and two grandchildren, a toddler and a baby, even though they don't normally cater for children. The rooms were immaculate with bright and clean decor and furniture with a roomy bathroom. Rooms were cleaned each day. There is a guest sitting room and we were told to help ourselves to drinks and snacks in the evening, even a fridge for our use. Breakfast was fantastic with a choice of "chef's specials" each day as well as the usual choices. There was ample parking and we were able to check in early and on our last day were able to leave the car there during the day even though we'd checked out. Can't wait to go back next year

We had an enjoyable stay at Devonia. The room was a good size and very clean and comfortable. We were warmly welcomed by Gail and Lindsey and the room was ready a lot earlier than many other guest houses, so we were able to make the most of our time in Lyme Regis. The B&B is well situated and if you walk through the gardens from the sea it doesn't take so long and is a lovely walk.
